With the hopes of stirring some creativity in the world of naming church ministries to senior citizens, here is a well researched list of common names for senior citizens. I know it’s kind of crazy, but feel free to join in!! What names have you heard before?
- Prime Timers
- Silver Liners
- Young at Heart
- Forever Young
- Keenagers (my favorite!)
- One I just came up with…sevenforty (like the popular student ministry oneighty, only more revolutions!)
Any more you would add?
In 2 years I can join these groups – and AARP. I don’t want any ‘cute’ name associated with a group I join. I know I’m seeing this from the other side of the Canyon, Nick, but most ‘old folks’ I know are vibrant, energetic people who have TONS to still contribute not only to Church but to the lives of everyone around them. The names should reflect that.
I suggest: Silver Warriors – or anything that reflects wisdom, tenacity, and energy.
But I’m sure there are many more. Don’t discount us old folks.
Boy I’m getting a little crotchety in my old age! *wink*
How about “Church for Mom and Dad”?
our church ministry is known as the Golden ministry.
